Integrated Reasoning Question Formats
The Integrated Reasoning section of the GMAT exam consists of 12 questions.
The Integrated Reasoning section consists of four question types, which require you to analyze and synthesize data in different formats and from multiple sources.
- Almost all question formats require multiple responses. Questions are designed to measure how well you integrate data to solve complex problems, so you must answer all parts of a single question correctly to receive credit.
- All answer choices for a single question are presented on the same screen. You must submit responses to all parts of the question before moving on to a new question on another screen. Once you answer a question, you may not go back and change the answer.
- Data presented in text are approximately 300 words or fewer.
- Answer options don’t provide information or clues that will help you solve other questions.
- One set of data is used for several Multi-Source Reasoning questions, but the questions are independent of one another—you won’t have to answer one question correctly to be able to answer another.
Graphics Interpretation: Interpret the graph or graphical image and select the option from a drop-down list to make the answer statements accurate.
Two-Part Analysis: Select one answer from each column to solve a problem with a two-part solution. Possible answers will be presented in a table with a column for each part.
Table Analysis: Sort the table to organize the data so you can determine whether certain conditions are met. Each question will have statements with opposing answers (e.g., yes/no, true/false, inferable/not inferable); select one answer for each statement.
